Lifesaving Driving Classes For Teens At Texas Motor Speedway

In March 2024 B.R.A.K.E.S.(Be Responsible and Keep Everyone Safe), held driving classes for teenagers at the Texas Motor Speedway.

Here is some information about the event from KDFW NBC5 (Dallas Fort Worth) prior to the event:

Car crashes are one of the leading causes of teen deaths, but one organization is stepping up to make a change. B.R.A.K.E.S., a free national driving school founded by Top Fuel Drag Racer, Doug Herbert, who tragically lost his sons in a car crash, is coming to the metroplex.

Over 130,000 teens and their parents have received behind-the-wheel safety training through the program. Classes are conducted at venues across the country, and they are entirely free of charge. The three-hour session combines classroom instruction with practical behind-the-wheel training. The curriculum addresses crucial skills like distracted driving awareness, panic braking, drop-wheel/off-road recovery, crash avoidance, and car control/skid recovery — key areas that often contribute to accidents among new drivers.
